Sorry if there is a subject on here about it but I couldn't find it. I havent skated in over 2 years then started back about 2 months ago. I broke the first board i got 2 months ago by just doing a high pop kickflip and landed on the nose and it snapped it. Not bad but it was cracked where you could see it and i was able to use it for another few days. I just got another one today and did the same thing except it was a tre flip and still on the nose. I'm 19 and only weigh 145 pounds at the most. Is this normal since it was on flat ground both times. I'm hoping it was just bad luck. Also thinking about buying a lib tech board since i have seen plenty of reviews of those lasting longer with pop and more durable. Hit me up guys.

land on your bolts.  it's the only way to prevent board breakage because they all will break.

Bolts bolts bolts. Not only does it make landing your tricks look super clean but it will also preserve your deck from sever breakage like what you've been experiencing. Wink

Try a bamboo deck. I was having a similar problem until I switched to bamboo. It has a slightly different feel than traditional maple boards, but it's lighter and stronger......virtually unbreakable. When I first got my deck, I did the stomp test....one foot, full force, directly onto the center of the board and it didn't break. You can flex, bend, pop, stomp, and throw them all over the place and they won't break. I read about one dude that said his board rolled out into the street, was run over by a truck, and he picked it up and kept skating. After two months of hard use, I'm just now seeing the first signs of pressure cracks on mine.
